Christmas Day

we spent Christmas day at nana/papa's house
don't you feel welcomed!!!???
of course we had to spend most of the day playing with our new toys that santa left...
but when that got to be too much we went outside and "helped" papa build our tree house...

and what would Christmas be without a HUGE LUNCH!?
here is uncle j all decked out and ready to sauté....

we had a wonderful time relaxing and laughing with family around the table....

I hope that all of y'alls Christmas was as blessed with love and family!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Birthday Party for Jesus!

since we have had the boys we have started the tradition
of throwing a
birthday party for Jesus
on Christmas eve
the evening starts with dinner
and then papa reads from the bible
the story of the birth of Christ
then we put on our party hats,
decorated the birthday cupcakes that nana made,
sang happy birthday to Jesus
and then everyone blew out their candle!!!
here we are all dressed for bed and awaiting presents

nonnie was in town this week and we all went to the gaylord texan to see...
here are a few facts about the ICE exhibit...
1. it's 9 degrees inside the exhibit
2. 2 million pounds of ice make up the exhibit
3. it's 9 degrees inside the exhibit
4. artisans from china sculpted the 14,000 square foot exhibit
5. it's 9 degrees inside the exhibit
despite THE COLD we had a fantastic time!!!!

here's coming down the ice slide - or rather getting stuck on the ice slide....

here's coming down the ice slide head first and backwards.....

daddy decided it looked like so much fun he wanted to go too....

the exhibit ends with a beautiful nativity...

we had a lot of fun and plan to return for all the other "cool stuff" that the gaylord texan has to offer during the holiday

the incredible camping crims are at it again!!!!
this last weekend we went to fairfield state park -
were - despite the cold AND the burn ban - we had a great time experiencing fall fairfield state park just happens to be "close" to nana/papa's house - so they came down for the afternoon - they REALLY love those boys - why else leave your cozy home and trek out into the freezing woods during a burn ban!!!!!
not only was there a burn ban BUT we also ran across these "warnings"....

we actually saw a "camp robber" as well as a wild hog -
as i'm sure you can imagine - the boys were EXTREMELY impressed!!!!!!

in spite of all the cold, thieves and wild animals we crim's had a fun time as usual!!

we rode bikes to the park.....

who knows - maybe hanging upside down keeps you warm????!!!!!

fairfield state park sits on fairfield lake - which is warmed by a utility plant
apparently this makes for great winter fishing
fairfield lake holds the record for the largest inland red drum (44 inches, 36.83 lbs.) -
we don't fish but we love to hike/trek around hill and dale - and fairfield has some great ravines/creek beds/trails

we found this AWESOME tree - it was gi-normus and perfect for climbing!!!!!

king of the mountain!

stay tuned for the crim thanksgiving adventures - until then.....

"let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and HIS wonderful deeds for men, for HE satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things" psalms 107:8-9
